Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 13.0 to 13.1 [Release 13.0 to 13.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS) 13.0.x,  version, when a Vendor Funded Markdown (VFM) is created with more than one component and a clearance is created for it, the income in the DEAL_ACTUALS_ITEM_LOC table reports to the first component.  For example, if a VFM has two components with a different item on each component, the turnover and income for the second item/component is reported to detail ID 1.  It should be reported to detail ID 2.  All the other information is correct except the detail ID.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a VFM deal with 2 components, each with stock on hand.  Have one item per component at the same location for simplicity.
  2. Save and approve the deal.
  3. Go into Retail Price Management (RPM) and create a clearance for a VFM for each item for the deal: 10% off, 100 percent funded.
  4. Let the batches run for the night, including the following:
  5. Check DEAL_ACTUALS_ITEM_LOC the next day.
